And other armor and accessories available to Ranged Magic DPS. However, unlike other jobs, a blue mage's weapons do not have any main attributes that enhance their base stats. Instead blue mages will be able to output higher magic damage than other jobs by stacking up on intelligence points, so it'll be important to prepare your gear and accessories with this in mind.

Blue mage functions independently of other classes and jobs, starting at level 1 with a maximum level of 50.

Rather than gaining new actions by increasing in level, blue mages learn them from enemies. In order to do so, you must first witness an enemy perform a special attack in battle. Once it is defeated, you have a chance of acquiring the ability. You do not have to be hit by that spell. After defeating the enemy, you have a chance of learning that spell. The chance is determined by the rank of the spell. ★ is the easiest to learn while ★★★★★ is the hardest.
- You don't need to be hit by the spell, only see it to be casted.
- If you're dead when is enemy is defeated, you will Not learn the spell.
- If one person in a party leans the spell, everyone, who is alive, in the party will also learn it.
- Job level has no influence on when an action can be learned. There is no minimum level to learn a spell unless it is inside a duty. Sync or unsync has not impact on chance of learning.
All spells you have learned are recorded in the Blue Magic Spellbook. The book also contains hints on how to acquire other spells.
